New Law for Transgendered 1st Grader

by Kristi on June 24, 2013 · 0 comments

This sums it up for me. I feel for any person who feels as if they are trapped in the wrong body. That said, I can’t help but be wary of slapping the transgender label on a child too soon. I’m not saying this is the case here, no one knows but the child and, […]


UFC Classes

by Kristi on June 4, 2013 · 0 comments

We went to the local UFC joint to do a self-defense class for our Girl Scout Troop. It was fun and all the girls had a great time. The Moms did a beginner class in boxing and learned a few tricks. Sadly, they had a great intro price to sign up… and Sam really wanted […]


Hello Monday!

by Kristi on May 13, 2013 · 0 comments

It’s a new week, someone just reminded me! I just read this quick roundup by Angry Julie and loved it. My pictures are on my phone, my phone is on my desk, I’m on my computer… The task of moving everything around is exhausting. However… HELLO MONDAY! I feel like I’m whistling the Jeopardy tune for several […]

So, after talking about our experience yesterday of being robbed, the husband has been busy today talking with insurance, alarm companies, neighbors, and running errands. After talking to several neighbors it just makes me cringe to know how many burglaries are so close to us!Our next door neighbor on one side was robbed three years […]

The kids are okay. (The kids are more than fine actually, they are busy watching the rest of their movie from the long drive, they don’t notice anything.) I have my wedding ring on. The house was still standing (I always envision driving up after being away and the house just a puddle of ash […]


Complain, Complain… and Upgrades!

by Kristi on January 20, 2013 · 3 comments

Funny. Everyone who knows me, knows I’m a complainer. I like to complain. I should really stop complaining so much but whatever. Anyway. I got the flu last week. I’m hardly EVER sick so it wasn’t that bad really. I usually recover from illness quickly, I’m kinda healthy. In some ways. However, I had to […]


I Have Nothing Interesting To Say

by Kristi on December 14, 2012 · 0 comments

I simply need to keep repeating that I am heart broken over today’s tragedy. It’s nothing new to say. It’s nothing interesting to say. It’s just that I am so sad. I can’t believe that a person would walk into a classroom and shoot down innocent children. This writing is mostly for me. To be sad. […]


That Damn Elf

SOMEONE… or something, rather… showed up in our house tonight. A few days ago I said THIS on Facebook: Would you people please stop doing crazy Elf on the Shelf shenanigans?? My kids are now asking why we don’t have one of those Elf people! AHHHH My evil Mother in Law promptly decided to buy […]

My beautiful Mother in Law took Sammie and I to the Nutcracker last Saturday! What a great show! She also bought the series so we will be going back to three more shows in the next six months. Can’t wait!

The Grinch!

by Kristi on December 1, 2012 · 0 comments

We saw the Grinch tonight with our Girl Scout Troop. It was the ADBA and Freckled Frog. REALLY well done. No pictures though. However the decorations were adorable. The kids dancing and singing were fabulous! Griffin sat on my lap (he wanted to sit next to Brooke – his girrrrllll-friend) and loved the whole thing. […]


NaNoBloMo – Boom

by Kristi on November 30, 2012 · 0 comments

Well, I did it. About a month full of blog posts. I gave up on the thankful stuff about halfway through. While I am thankful for a HELL of a lot, it really is hard to remember to SAY it out lour (or in writing) what I am thankful for on a daily basis. On […]


New Landscaping & Solar Panels!

by Kristi on November 29, 2012 · 1 comment

    For the last two months we have been working on the house. First, we got Solar Panels from Solar City. Those took about 5 months from the initial consultation, to installment, to actually turning them on! Our electric bill which can vary from $150 a month to $300 a month was…. negative $11 […]
